Abstract

MACHADO, Ricardo et al. Anticoagulant effects of phytotherapeutic drugs and their importance in surgical dental procedures. RGO, Rev. Gaúch. Odontol. [online]. 2017, vol.65, n.2, pp.148-150. ISSN 1981-8637.  http://dx.doi.org/10.1590/1981-863720170002000083316.

Phytotherapeutic drugs are plant-derived products with medicinal properties. They are used for treating or preventing several diseases. However, patients who use these substances and even health professionals are unaware of their negative effects. One of the most common negative effects of phytotherapeutic drugs reported in the literature is the inhibition of natural coagulation factors in the human body. Therefore, the aim of this study was to perform a brief review of the literature concerning the anticoagulant effects of phytotherapeutic drugs and their importance in surgical dental procedures. Preventive measures, clarification and monitoring of patients taking phytotherapeutic drugs are recommended before performing surgical dental procedures, in order to prevent against complications such as hemorrhage.

Keywords : Blood coagulation factors; Phytotherapeutic drugs; Surgical dental procedures.
